… would trade them if you want. If so, include in your comment that you wish to trade. For Wednesday Stamper’s Open theme.
These are two more ATC’s using the gesso transfers I had been doing on fabric. Their theme was “Sewed”, and I sewed the fabric pieces on with tiny rocaille beads. Both are for a swap via ArtMix for Johanna. Embellishments are diecut photo corners and a vintage metallic lace. Stamps are my own and Paperbag Studios.
With the lace, thread and beads it also qualifies for the haberdashery department challenge at Daring Cardmakers.

Via Artmix – as well as answering the Wednesday Stamper challenge: 2 ATC’s, stamped on fabric. Fabric first got images transferred to it using gesso transfer. Stamps: Paperbag, MM, A Stamp in the Hand. Oil crayons, my own scaloped edge paper (Basic Grey, scaloped using cutting plotter), sequins, tiny watchmaker parts and copper heishi beads … PLUS two gorgeous turquoise mother-of-pearl buttons.
Edit: Since I was asked several times how gesso transfer works, here you go: It is basically the same technique as the one using acrylic matte / glossy / gel medium. You can use many acrylic paints, and gesso, for this transfer technique. Here is a tutorial with step-by-step instructions.
Good that I have an RSS feed for Michelle Ward’s GPP Street Team Crusades, ’cause this way I get to know about the new challenges right away, and, boy, do I love those challenges. Although I am thousands of miles away, living in a different country, and although I never met her personally, I think she is a wonderful artist and very special kind of person. She rocks!
Although a stamper, I normally don’t embellish my envelopes since I don’t have a lot of time for creating anyway. But with the new crusade, I felt challenged to give it a try, and I decided to make a “custom-made” envie for the swap I am participating in at ArtMix. Here you go:
My turn to set the challenge for the regular one-on-one swap with Diana. I chose the theme Sun / Summer and came up with an interpretation of Ingeborg Bachmann’s beautiful words “Nothing more beautiful under the sun than to be under the sun”.
